Sanem Ozdural, author of LiGa™, speaking at Words and Music Festival in New Orleans @ Words and Music festival

Sanem Ozdural, author of LiGa™, will be speaking at the Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society Words and Music Festival in New Orleans, at 09:45am on Friday 30 November 2012 in the Queen Ann Ballroom of the Hotel Monteleone:


LITERATURE OUT OF TIME
The Art of Using Fiction as a Magic Carpet for Time Travel

Transporting the reader to another time, another world, even worlds that are still in the future, with the reader eagerly stepping aboard the author’s time travel vehicle is a special kind of magic. And it’s the kind of magic that can make or break speculative fiction. New Orleans fiction writer Moira Crone and debut novelist Sanem Ozdural will discuss the art of exploring the future with fiction.

Ms. Ozdural, a practicing attorney who cut her legal teeth as a prosecutor with the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office, is author of LiGa (acronym for Life Game), a novel about a game of the future where the coin is extra years of life.

Both authors, keen observers of the harsh realities of our time, take those realities and multiply them, envisioning a future in which the division between the haves and have-nots reaches epic proportions. Against their dramatic landscapes, they each in different ways explore the fall-out from quests for immortality. The key to the success of such explorations? Moira and Sanem will let you in on that secret.

Sanem will be signing copies of LiGa in the Book Mart immediately after the session.

LiGa™ by Sanem Ozdural. Science fact or fiction? Prediction or warning?

Join her for a reading and a discussion ranging from writing speculative fiction to the ramifications of her imagined world.
